Two Solitudes – CS and Software

Via channels I can’t now remember, I came across this presentation about the very unsolved issue of how Computer Science as a field of study relates in any way to creating software.

With so many colleges in the area, and having a number of friends that are CS professors, and other IT staff at colleges, it continues to amaze me how disconnected these worlds are. All made the stranger by coming into the field sideways from a physics degree.

Plus, I love the term software carpentry.
